. president obama is announcing his new cabinet choices that will shape the future of the u.s. military as well as defense policy and intelligence gathering. the next hour, two more cabinet nominees will be named. former senator chuck hagel for defense secretary and homeland security adviser john brennan for cia director. he has already picked senator john kerry as his nominee for secretary of state. president's choice, chuck hagel for defense secretary already coming under some fire. some republicans point to comments that hagel made back in 2007, that they perceive as anti-jewish. here is how south carolina lindsey graham described the decision to nominate hagel. >> this is an in-your-face nomination by the president to all of us who are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon. little, if any. i think it's an incredibly controversial choice. and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in-your-face term. >> want to bring in our white house correspondent brianna keilar. we no that the white house has been callin
president joe biden is meeting with groups including the nra this week as part of president obama's task force to find solutions to the epidemic. the nra said it's "sending a rep to see what they have to say." my, that's big of them. other gun fans are having their say on the internet. they're promoting gun appreciation day to be held on january 19th. gun activists are being urged to turn out at gun stores, ranges and gun shows from coast-to-coast. we'll have a commentary on that later in the show. and if talk show host alex jones is with them, let's hope someone brings his meds. last night jones had what is now an iconically famous screaming fit which was rudely interrupted by piers morgan trying to ask questions about gun control. here's part of what alex jones had to screech. >> 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. it doesn't matter how many you get out there on the street begging for them to have their guns taken. we will not relinquish them. do you understand? >> john: only too well, sir. you need help. i'm joined by nancy bowman, a nurse on the scene in tucson
the bush administration did and what the obama administration does. >> obama administration does not enhance in interrogation techniques or the -- it ended during the bush administration. the obama administration has other stories. they engage in drone attacks. but torture has been a no-go. >> rose: raising some questions about what drone attacks are. it is called the killing of so is ma bin laden. did torture play a role in finding osama bin laden and killing him. >> yes it did. it played a role it didn't play a key role but definitely speaking specifically, the fact that there was this fellow called ahmed from kuwait surfaced in a number of the early coercive interrogations. at the time the interrogators and the c.i.a. didn't know who that was in particular so i would have to say the most important piece of information and i don't know how we obtained it exactly was connecting that from kuwait to a real person ahmed. that was really the key. so i think those who argue that the hunt for bin laden really gained traction when we attach that name to a person can argue i think fair
, that one vote could be important. host: and facebook, it, president obama thought raising the debt ceiling was a bad idea -- facebook comment, president obama thought raising the debt ceiling was a bad idea when bush was president and said he would not vote for it, but later voted present. guest: with this a filibuster debate that is going on now in the senate between the republicans and democrats, if you go back and read the comments, they were reversed in 2005 when the democrats were filibustering george bush's traditional nominations. i think it is important to do these things on their merits. i think senator obama's vote was a mistake. if there is any truth in this town, it is that there is no dearth of blame to go around. host: how much time did you take to consider the caucus? guest: i did not make a decision during the campaign. i was asked a question almost exclusively by washington journalists. i was virtually never ask the question by people in maine. most people in maine did not care. they said, go down there and try to get something done. one guy yelled across the diner, i did
of some members of the obama administration. mcchrystal writes, this is quote, regardless how i judged the story for fairness or accuracy, responsibility was mine. general mcchrystal also suggests in this new book that michael hastings, that free-lance author of the article, may have been unworthy of his trust and transparency and he describes the plane ride back to d.c. on his way to offer his resignation to president obama after 34 years of service, by writing that he didn't call anyone for advice, he just got on the plane and that was that. something else mcchrystal chronicles in his book are the struggles he had with the white house while he was in charge in kabul. there were apparently major disagreement about how many troops should be sent to war, the beginning of the obama administration and mcchrystal rights that military leaders wanted 30,000, and the president approved 17,000 and 4,000 more added, but only after what sounds like, in this book, some very intense back and forth between the two sides about, with obviously different views how to do the insurgency, back to you in
. let me do that now. today president obama is expected to nominate former republican senator chuck hagel of nebraska as the next defense secretary. hagel, a decorated vietnam combat veteran, would be the first enlisted soldier to hold that cabinet post. his confirmation, however, is -- can you believe this -- shaping up to be a testy battle with the republicans. even though he is a republican. a number of republicans have suggested they will challenge their former colleague with tough questions on his foreign policy record. >> his views with regard to israel, for example, and iran and all the other positions that he's taken over the years will be, you know, i think very much a matter of discussion during the confirmation process. >> so you're not predicting smooth sailing for chuck hagel? >> i think it will be a lot of tough questions of senator hagel, but he'll be treated fairly by republican s in the senate. >> quite frankly, chuck hagel is out of the mainstream of thinking i believe on most issues regarding foreign policy. i expect the president to nominate people different than
on a budget barack obama says give us a new credit card and by the way, harry reid you don't have to pass a budget in three years. this is crazy. >> would you support this year letting the debt ceiling deadline last? >> what i won't support is not dealing with the problem. americans sent us here to deal with the problem. the way this town works this fiscal cliff deal the only winners in the fiscal cliff deal were washington. they got more money. the folks i represent in the fourth district of ohio they lost revenue, small business owners had money taken from them. washington always wins and the politicians and consultants and folks here always win. 7 of the 10 wealthiest counties in the country are in the d.c. area. mr. van hollen represents one of those. this area regular americans lose and it is about time we said stop this madness and cut up the credit cards and we want a solution not another washington deal which helps d.c. >> a couple of joints, john. first of all, the sequester was not kicked down the road. it was replaced for two months -- >> replaced means postponed which is what
this is not the team of rivals that president obama assembled in the first obama term. this is really the team of buddies, and it's all male. how does that play politically? zoo see that some cabinet posts are almost rewards for strong deputies, good super staffers. we're want seeing the president do this. he wants the people that he wants there, i mean, in a very -- he and -- look, chuck hagel was probably not the first choice of a lot of folks inside the west wing. there's some questions. can he manage a bureaucracy of his size? how many people are qualified to manage a bureaucracy the size of the defense department? he set that question aside. this is -- this was the president's choice, first choice, and obviously this very close relationship with john brennan, trying to give sort of the cia its mojo back, if you will, in the intelligence community, and i think that that's something that brennan -- that some folks in the intel community i think are hoping brennan does. let's also not forget that, you know, with brennan and hagel going up at the same time, andrea, any questions that there mi

. at the same time he's in many ways a more progressive than president obama who is unfortunately the favorite politician of the progressive left, such as it is. i mean, your president obama who has expanded the president's powers to unilaterally imprison beyond even george bush is a time. ron paul is a guy who gave 7000 college students to boo a mere mention of the bill signed by president obama. your president too, who has started new unauthorized wars with the drug program and presided over continuing gigantic defense budget bigger than any in world history and ron paul campaign some the other hand for peace and withdraw the u.s. military from the world. you've got obama who wants to expand every aspect of the war on drugs, including state legal medical marijuana. ron paul thinks government attempts to arrest people for actions that harm them at themselves are inherently less legitimate. the obama administration has set records in deportations. ron paul is saying to a republican debate the border walls are essentially un-american. on this wide range of issue in protecting people from concen
his shows -- >> stephanie: okay. all of the people comparing obama to hitler that's not somebody who is a hysterical gun nut. >> caller: that's absolutely disgusting to say that. but if you look at the history of europe and australia, when they have national gun registries, then complete gun bans have happened. that's historical fact. if you want me to send you an email i would be more than happy to. >> there was a massive buyback of guns in australia -- >> stephanie: yeah, it was a massive shooting there and it has cut gun deaths to practically zilch. >> caller: you can't own a firearm in australia without tremendous regulations. so they did do a gun registry nationwide, and they said all of these guys on the registry come and sell your guns to us. >> stephanie: you would rather live in a country with 10,000 gun deaths? >> caller: no, i think you are on the right path. i like what -- what biden is doing. what i don't like is the fact that people are not putting their cards on the table. i mean -- biden is an anti gun type of guy. he is more restrictive than

administration. i think obama gives him a lot of cover on this issue. i think democrats would call him a pariah if it's happening at a different time. but on the other stuff, israel thing, the views on israel, the views on hamas and previous statements i find to be fairly unpalatable but i think republicans feel the same way about obama's, you know, policies so there's no real surprise there and that's why i just don't think as valid as the inquiries are and the confirmation process is rigorous, i just don't think he's going to not be confirmed here. >> right. >> we'll ask the questions and move on. >> right. well to your point of sort of politics of how it went down and barney frank is a great case in point. >> yes. >> when hagel was floated as maybe the nominee, they said they're not comfortable with him and now that he is the nominee, barney frank said, actually, i do support him. >> of course. >> i think it's worth pointing out that the president by having this leak and letting him twist in the wind for a while, the left would have closed ranks and come behind him much more quickly announce
there u.s. domestic politics, president obama did not want to further alienate the powerful domestic public ownership lobby, gun ownership lobby prior to the election. that was a problem. we had a terrible tragedy this weekend seems to have changed opinion in the states. first of all do you think, terrible thing to say, have a positive effect on actually getting agreement from the united states? but secondly, and you mentioned other armed export countries you want on board, to what extent is it countries like russia and china actually will determine how effective a treaty is if it is finally agreed by consensus? >> to the last comment, the treaty that involves those countries that sign and ratify it will be dramatically more effective. russia is a major arms exporter as is the united states. and so we do want them in it. i think it is too early to say, really it's, analysis of u.s. domestic politics, well the u.s. politicians might find difficult at the moment to say how the terrible outrage last week may have affected this but we had reached a point in july with the inclusion of amm
though mitt romney lost, that the next four years would be better because you said barack obama cares about women so much. >> yeah. >> and i thought he did. but obama's remade inner circle has an all-male look so far. you look at -- you look at barack obama's inner circle, and you look at the chairmen, and i can say chairmen in the house of representatives, it's like they're all men. we are back in, like, 1950, mika. >> i'm sorry, the caption underneath is really funny. yeah. >> all i can see is valerie's leg. >> love valerie. she's right there. strong. >> they're all men, seriously. these are the guys that ran, like, "time" magazine in 1950. all the house chairmen are men. >> mm-hmm. >> it's unbelievable. >> we need more women in there. >> thank god the nominees that the president has out there are making it more diverse. >> diverse. >> all white men. >> we'll have stephanie cutter come in on this. >> does it make you sad? >> i think his policies, though, and his -- >> oh. >> no. because you need to actually lift more women up over a series of generations in order to be able to get t
julian assange and the information coming out about how the u.s. government, despite president obama's liberal policies, has been one of the harshest administrations toward whistle- blowers. >> this is interesting. it is certainly true that the obama administration has been among the harshest on an external whistle-blowers. however, the obama administration has been -- especially this new administration which managed to cram through a whistle-blower protection act and expand it for government whistleblowers, is offering protections they have not had for decades. so he wants them, whistle- blowers, to be able to work without retaliation within the system. he is very much opposed to information being released willy-nilly by people inside that just ended all over the world. we interviewed assange right after the wikileaks issue, he believes that all information should be there, regardless of the possibility of innocent victims. he is a person who believes that, no matter what the consequences are, the information should be out there. a lot of the wikileaks stuff was pretty niggly stuff,

that the bauks fundamentally shifted its poll di-- obama administration fundamentally shifted its policy by moving away from targeting unauthorized immigrants through high-profile rates to targeting actually employers who hire unauthorized workers. since june -- since january of 2009, i.c.e. has audited more than 8,000 employers. it has debarred 726 companies and imposed about $88 million in criminal monetary fines on employers. a very significant -- and the last thing on the work force that i will touch on is there has been an increased effort on the labor standards enforcement in our country. we all know that labor standards enforcements always takes less priority in our overall enforcement system. there are only 1,100 inspectors in the division to monitor about more than 7.5 million u.s. business establishments. that obviously is not going to do the job as efficiently as one would like to. therefore, the department of labor has more recently gone into more smarter, more targeted enforcement of those employers who habitually violate the laws on the books on labor standards. and in indu
